Like little stars.
Natalie Portman, what can’t you do? Graduate from Harvard with honors? Check. Bury scarring memories of “Star Wars” I, II and III? Check. Star in a hotly hyped upcoming movie that is already bathing you in Oscar’s shining golden glow? Check. Why don’t you pull a James Franco and expand your obvious talents into other creative endeavors?
Oh, guess you’re already one step ahead. Well played, Portman.
Turns out the “Black Swan” starlet has penned a script with a college friend, Perezhilton.com reports. And it’s not going to be some deep, angsty philosophical forray into dram-ah. Portman’s flick is being described as the female version of “Superbad.” Kind of a curveball, but maybe she can pull it off.
The script, which Portman and her pal Laura Moses are shopping around, is called “BYO” (as in Bring Your Own) and centers around two 20-something single women out of luck with love. Their solution? Throw a party where every women must bring a single guy. We’re sure hilarity is soon to follow. Portman would play the lead, naturally, and Anne Hathaway is reportedly interested in co-starring.
Apparently there aren’t any takers yet, and if it doesn’t get picked up, Entertainment Weekly’s Popwatch thinks it’ll be personally financed and independantly produced. Either way, the prospect of a smart, raunchy chick flick with two of Hollywood’s most talented actresses already sounds worth the price of admission.
Take it away, Natie P.

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
